Locations of Fish Attractors

Return to Lake Somerville fishing page

Working with local partners, TPWD has installed commercial fish attracting structure in this reservoir. Situated at 9- to 11-foot depths when the lake is full, the artificial structures last longer than natural brush, shed fishing hooks better than wood, and will look like small pine trees on a depth finder. This project was made possible by the Brazos River Authority which purchased the structures as part of a larger-scale project to enhance fish habitat on multiple BRA reservoirs.

The map and chart below show locations of the fish attractors. Coordinates are also available in downloadable files.
